Lely Storm 130P
The Lely Storm 130 P sets new standards for trailed forage harvesters.
.Due to their outstanding output and low maintenance these forage harvesters are the ideal machines for contractors and large farmers. Especially when harvesting grass, the Lely Storm 130 P model demonstrates its excellent performance in terms of harvesting and blowing, in all crop types and conditions.
Powerful and smooth drive
The flywheel is driven via a rugged V-belt. Variable and exchangeable pulleys make it possible to use several tractor PTO speeds and flywheel r.p.m. rates. This prevents the need to use an energy-absorbing and high maintenance rectangular gearbox.
Tremendous ejection force
Five or ten special blades ensure a perfect short cutting action. Blowing paddles (10 as maximum) with wear plates that can be used on four sides guarantee optimum performance in terms of ejection and throughput. The bolted wear strips on the bottom of the flywheel housing are exchangeable.
Optimal adjustment of coupling
The Lely Storm 130 P features a length-adjustable drawbar as well as a height‑adjustable clevis yoke to ensure optimum attachment to the lift draw bar or tractor hitch. A stable and height-adjustable axle construction – with large tyres – ensuring good flotation under difficult conditions.
The Lely Storm Profi is fitted with a metal detector, which eliminates damage caused by metal objects. Immediately after a metal object has been identified, a double stop ratchet stops the intake rollers dead. The on-board hydraulics automatically switch the drive to the neutral position.
Laterally adjustable drawbar
Due to the laterally adjustable draw bar, the machine can be driven in the off-set position or in line with the tractor.
High crop throughput
This exceptionally rugged chopping unit is one of the best methods for harvesting high quality fodder. The 450 mm wide intake system guarantees a huge crop throughput. Four aggressive feed rollers ensure optimum pre-compaction of the crop and transport it consistently to the flywheel. The flywheel is fitted with a maximum of 12 blades and blowing paddles; this ensures precise cutting of the crop as well as a powerful blowing performance.
Powerful crop intake system
Two lower feed rollers plus two spring-loaded pre-compaction rollers on top ensure optimal compaction and a smooth, consistent crop flow. The compaction roller guides are designed for each roller to adapt itself separately depending on crop volume.
Low maintenance direct drive
The feed rollers are driven by high-capacity PTO shafts and are individually protected from overload by slip clutches. The Profi models feature a metal detector, which immediately stops the crop intake the second it detects an obstacle.
Crop intake can be adjusted to forward, reverse or neutral by means of the electrohydraulically controlled reversing system. The intake auger of the pick-up is lifted hydraulically at the same time reversing takes place. This system allows any crop blockage to be cleared quickly using the handset in the tractor cab.
Easy adjustment of chopping length
By changing the gears in the gearbox, the operator can quickly adjust the chopping length within the range from 5 to 36 mm without having to use any tools.
Lely Storm – unrivalled harvesting quality, ultimate output and efficiency
The Lely Storm achieves an excellent ratio of power requirement versus throughput. Thanks to its low energy requirements, the machine ensures considerable saving of fuel and, hence, environmentally-friendly forage harvesting. A maximum of 12 blades and blowing paddles guarantee precise chopping plus powerful ejection for all types of crop.
Easy running plus unsurpassed harvesting quality
Due to the flywheel effect, these forage harvesters produce a great deal of kinetic energy, which ensures sudden increased loads are dealt with easily. Peak loads are levelled out and the r.p.m. rate remains consistent. Results: a consistent chop length and a 20% reduction in energy requirements.
Reduced risk of foreign objects
The massive flywheel, in combination with its complimentary housing have proven that the flywheel forage harvester is far less susceptible to intrusion of foreign objects than cylinder-type machines.
Exact and smooth chopping
The vertical chopping action along with a maximum of 12 special blades guarantees precise chopping ensuring optimal utilisation of energy throughout the chopping process.
Powerful and rapid filling of trailers
Thanks to the large flywheel diameter and the maximum of 12 blowing paddles, the crop is ejected consistently with tremendous blowing power. The blowing paddles feature adjustable wear plates that can be used on four sides. A standard double hinged ejection flap avoids extreme deflection of the crop flow and prevents blockages.
Shear bar can be used on both sides
The shear bar can be used on both sides; it has a tungsten-carbide coating and can be simply dismounted and reinstalled.
Simple grinding – always sharp blades
The easily operated knife sharpener gives knives an accurate, uniform edge. During grinding, the flywheel rotates at a low speed and the grinding disc is easily wound in to sharpen the blades. In next to no time, the blades are razor-sharp again. Thanks to the central adjustment, the flywheel is set to the ideal distance from the shear bar very quickly; simply unlock and adjust without any special tools!
Unique on-board hydraulics
The on-board hydraulics ensure a precise and independent oil flow. A built-in oil pump with its own oil reservoir supplies the hydraulic power for raising the pick-up, reversing the drive, and spout rotation. All functions can be comfortably controlled from the electrohydraulic handset in the tractor cab.
